A 6-weeks workshop collaboration with WAAG’s textile lab, Amsterdam for Ensad textile design master students
Students explore by groups of two the potential of microbiology for the development of more sustainable textile concepts, processes and outcomes. By learning how to produce colours from bacteria and investigating how materials such as kombucha or mycelium leather can be grown, they will question and explore the design opportunities and constraints offered by these microbiologically produced substances for the expansion and renewal of the textile industry.
